Winemaker's Notes:

Badiola, a blend of Sangiovese, Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon, is a deep, inky purple color. It has an intense aromas of dark fruits and cocoa. Soft and smooth on the palate, with flavors of wild blackberries and raspberries. It's well balanced, with great depth and a long finish.

About Castello di Fonterutoli:

Castello di Fonterutoli, source of some of Italy's most prestigious wines, is an historic property embracing an entire tranquil, centuries-old hamlet just south of Castellina in Chianti, in the heart of Chianti Classico. The estate has been in the hands of the Mazzei family – devoted to winemaking for 24 generations – since 1435 and is today led by Lapo Mazzei and his sons, Francesco and Filippo.

This dynamic family has carefully safeguarded the inherent beauty and rich heritage of Fonterutoli, while simultaneously implementing measures to ensure cutting-edge quality in the vineyards and cellars. An exciting example of this dedication to quality is the in-progress construction of a stunning new cellar that operates via gravity and clean energy, and has already been defined as "the most impressive in the entire Chianti region" by Steven Spurrier of Decanter Magazine.
